OUR UMAMI RECIPE IS QUICK AND EASY TO MAKE AND DELICIOUS TO YOUR DOG!

Our umami recipe ingredients to make 100% balanced plant-based and homemade dog food using VEGDOG supplement

 

Cooked ingredients each carefully out weighed in grams specific to your dog

 

  • Frozen green peas
  • Chopped celery, kale leaves, carrots and cauliflower
  • Dry red lentils (raw dry weight)
  • Wholewheat pasta – dry weight

 

Nutrient rich icing also carefully weighed out

Our Balanced Umami Homemade Recipe

 

Preparation:

  • Weigh out the amount of red lentils needed the night before, rinse them and leave to soak
  • Weigh out the frozen peas and dry pasta and add to a large pot together with the soaked lentils
  • Chop the weighed amounts of carrots, celery, cauliflower and kale
  • Remove woody stems from the kale
  • Add all vegetables to the pot
  • Cover with water and boil on the hob for 40 minutes
  • Turn on the oven to 180C
  • Drain the water and mash or blend all ingredients well
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper and some coconut oil
  • Bake the mixture for 45 minutes
  • Once cooked, leave to cool on a drying rack with tray inverted so cooked area is on the base

For larger dogs and large quantities, you do NOT need to follow the baking step. Just feed the food mashed and divide into portions with the ‘icing’ in the next step on the top of the cooled portions (heating the ‘icing’ will destroy the valuable nutrients so always add the paste that is formed to the cooled mashed food).

 

Nutrient rich icing:

  • Cut the tip off the algae capsule and squeeze out the contents
  • Weigh out the sunflower oil (in grams)
  • Weigh out the coconut, ground almonds and VEGDOG supplement
  • Chop fresh basil and parsley and add to the mixture with dried oregano
  • Mix together with a little oat milk or almond milk to form a paste
  • ONLY WHEN COMPLETELY COOLED, ice the top of the cooked food
  • Cut into squares and fold into ‘sandwiches’ with the icing in the centre
  • Place in biodegradable packaging or containers to freeze for each day’s use

Defrost overnight to feed in the morning to your dog.

If cooking large quantities

If you are cooking for a large dog or a number of dogs, it is advisable to omit the baking of the food in the recipe shown above to make it easier for you. This means that you will be feeding the food once it has been boiled and blended or mashed together.

As dogs sometimes do not like the consistency of mashed food (similar to the consistency of mushy peas), to make it more palatable for very fussy dogs that prefer ‘slimy food’, we advise adding in AGAR AGAR powder that gives the food a slimy consistency, like tinned dog food. It is a healthy addition as it is fibre and adds to the essential gut microflora. It is made up by mixing 15g powder per 1kg cooked food that is boiled and allowed to cool and can then be mixed into the food. The nutrient rich ‘icing’ can then be added to the top of the food, or also mixed in, but ensure that the food is cold when added to retain vital nutrients.

 

Carefully weigh out the correct amount of frozen peas for your dog
Carefully weigh out the correct amount of dry red lentils for your dog
Carefully weigh out the correct amount of dry pasta for your dog
Chop and weigh out the correct amount of vegetables and add to the pot
Boil all ingredients together for an hour on the hob
Carefully mash or blend the food together
Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 45 minutes on a lined baking tray (line with coconut oil)
Leave on a drying rack to cool fully and invert the baking tray
Carefully weigh out the ingredients for the high nutrient icing with the VEGDOG supplement
Only once fully cooled, 'ice' the nutrient rich mixture on the wet side of the baked food with the cooked side underneath
Carefully cut into equal portions to make enough for either 3 days or 2 days depending on the size of your dog
Fold the cut and iced portions to be in the centre and form 'sandwiches'
Package the portions into containers or biodegradable packaging
Place portions in the freezer to defrost overnight ready for each day
